They must have come from the collection container, which I did not clean before heading out this time.

I deleted that photo and I’ve added two new ones of spores. Do you have a better method for rehydrating spores from tissue that are white or transparent?

Those spores are kind of dark

They almost look like Psathyrella spores. Are you sure they came from this mushroom?
